COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nothing is like celebrating your own milestones. This is a celebration of our 500th batch of ale. It was brewed with joy and splendor; the brewer wore a suit, and a TV station filmed the event. As a base for this ale, we have elected to play with numbers: 5 hops, 100 IBUs, 10% alcohol by volume. Indeed it is an Imperial India Pale Ale. Big and bold. Great for a celebration!

Cloudy brown beer. Light tan head. Light palate. Rich malt giving this DIPA a distinctly barlywine like character. Underneath are sweet red berry fruits. Alongside the malt there is pine hops and fresh orange hops, the latter in the finish. Decent barleywine!!
